Playing Catch Up: US a Step Closer to Developing Hypersonic Missile

Chris Riotta,The Independent 8 hours ago

The United States is racing to develop hypersonic missiles that can travel at five times the speed of sound, officials have confirmed.

Heather Wilson, secretary of the US Air Force, said the effort was being made to keep pace with other nations like Russia and China while speaking on Friday at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

The US Air Force currently operates 80 satellites in space, the secretary added. Her comments followed reports suggesting Russia was also developing new missile systems after Washington announced plans to exit from a landmark nuclear arms control pact.

Vladimir Putin said over the weekend that Russia has suspended the Cold War-era Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) which banned both countries from stationing short and intermediate-range land-based missiles in Europe.

3. We just came from eight years of an anti-military administration

When Trump took office, there was a lot of catching up we needed to do.
